I have been absent from SP since last Friday, due to a very busy schedule.
It is supposed to be our slow time at work but being one person short in our department (typically three people) and our boss being here on a part-time basis (he is director of two facilities) the work never seems to end. We have been able to keep up but will be so happy when another person is hired in mid-December.
Mike and I have been busy getting ready for his son, daughter-in-law and two grandson's visit. They are coming in this afternoon and staying through Monday. It has forced us to get serious about sorting through all our stuff. Happy to report that the main and upper floors are pretty much back in order (even my oldest sons room which we needed to use for the family to sleep in). The basement is another story. That will be our winter project.
Prior to knowing the dates Mike's family would be here, I ordered tickets to see Elton John in concert tomorrow night. We decided that I will go with my oldest son, who happily volunteered to be my date, and the others will spend the evening with Mike's mom and family members in the area. I am so excited to have this time with my son. He has been listening to Elton's music his entire life, and that he wants to share the experience with me makes me so happy.
We will drive back home after the concert - getting in about 3 a.m. so we won't miss too much time with the others.
Sunday will be our Thanksgiving, and I have so much to be thankful for - the two best sons a mom could ask for, a lot of family around me, good health, good friends, a job I enjoy and the love of a wonderful man!
Have a great weekend Sparklers!
